Looks like they might have received a swag bag delivery from the club that most likely included the jumper Oliver is wearing so they could take a photo for the socials and it might have also included that scarf. Or either they or a friend are Dees supporters and they supplied the scarf.

That is a lovely shot of Oliver and his mum and as someone already mentioned he could become an MFC folklore legend.!!!

Good pick up. Most would not notice it.

I remember watching JT's comments before the rookie draft.  Said we were looking at 1-2 players, and it would depend on who was available.  Clearly, we had some interest in Sestan, but if he was off the table we wouldn't have picked up another rookie.  

Might need to cool our jets a bit.  Guy looks like he could be a great get, but lets see him play a couple of games at Casey first.  If he wasn't on anyone's radar, there might be some growth needed. 

While everyone is understandably focusing on his Mansfield performances, it looks like he was regularly amongst the best and a regular goalkicker for Xavier last year they won the APS - https://www.oldxavs.com.au/post/xavier-wins-aps.  That's a good sign and probably more indicative given that it 

He's in a bit of a similar positon to Jayden Hunt - late pick, school footy.  If he's a contributing best 22/fringe player like Jayden I would be very happy.

Good advice Willy. I remember the frenzy on here when we selected Fraser Rosman. It all goes a bit over the top. I mean, I think I had Fraser pegged for winning the Brownlow this year.

The great comment from JT was that we don’t expect the draftees to play early, but rather to just develop their games.

That is just so different to the old Melbourne, where we would say that hopefully draftees would play some games next year.

It is the best policy and the wisest stance to take. We are fortunate with our recruiting in all regards, thanks to JT. We now have a supply of very good footballers - almost across the field of engagement - and from JT's point of view for us to all appreciate, a pool of decided talent that can mature, be enriched as footballers on the learning curve and be granted player-appropriate timeframes in which to blossom for the call. Healthiest start to a season for the Dees, unprecedented in the past.

I really hope he makes it.  What with Hibberd (Hibbard, Hibbert, Hippo etc) close to retirement the list does need players who no one can spell.  Whilst Jordon/Jordan is ok for a backup I do think that Sestan/Seston/Sestin/Sextin has massive potential.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se

    STINGA'S TRAINING REPORT Went with a friend to watch training this morning.  They have 3 sets of temporary grandstands set up next to the rooms for spectators and get a good view of everything.
